Each and every autonomous vehicle on the road today generates about 7.2 terabytes of data per hour. Such huge masses of data, distributed around the globe, produce unprecedented requirements for data organization, retrieval and analysis. I became excited in XCube when I saw how intelligently and economically their technology managed this data and the arrays of machines processing it.

Michael Mark brings extensive knowledge and experience to XCube having served on numerous boards including as Chairman of Progress Software from 2006-2013.  He earned a B.S. in Mathematics from MIT and began his career by co-founding Intercomp, which was sold to Logicon, as well as Cadmus Computer Corporation, which was sold to Apple Computer.

I became excited in XCube when I saw how intelligently and economically their technology managed this data and the arrays of machines processing it.”
